Federal Minimum wage...raise it to $9/hr?

Is Obama that out of touch?!?!
.20 cent/hr increase is a slap in the face you sad excuse for a commander.

173 full time hours/month * $8.80 =
$1522.40 GMI

173 full time hours/month * .20 cents more than $8.80/hr =
$1557.00 GMI

What can you buy for $35 more dollars/month...what a dumb prick!

Wall Street (that is Federal Reserve members) are guaranteed a 6% profit on paid in reserves after expenses.

Main Street will suffer as profits shrink, perhaps below the level of sustainability.

Government is happy, their cronies in the Federal Reserve are happy. Low productivity workers are happy.

Main Street gets the short end of stick, again.
